Monday’s Best NBA Player Props: Betting Jusuf Nurkic Rebounds, More
Pictured: Jusuf Nurkic
- Monday's six-game slate features NBA three player prop bets offering value.
- This piece will focus on Grizzlies PF JaMychal Green, Pistons PF Blake Griffin and Blazers C Jusuf Nurkic.
Monday’s best NBA player props focus on three of the slate’s six games:
- Memphis Grizzlies at Houston Rockets: 8 p.m. ET
- Detroit Pistons at Utah Jazz: 9 p.m. ET
- Portland Trail Blazers at Sacramento Kings: 10 p.m. ET
As a reminder, you can dig deeper on these and many other prop bets by using our FantasyLabs NBA Player Props Tool. It leverages our projections against five of the most popular online sportsbooks and grades each prop on a scale of one to 10.
Grizzlies PF JaMychal Green
The Pick: Under 8.5 rebounds (-125 at Bovada)
Green is coming off a monster performance in his last outing with 24 points and 11 rebounds in only 22.4 minutes against the Heat, which makes this an excellent opportunity to sell high on him: He’s averaging 6.8 rebounds in 23.4 minutes per game, so this number feels inflated by that performance in Miami.
Monday’s Grizzlies-Rockets game should also feature minimal possessions, with both teams currently ranked among the bottom three in pace.
This is the highest rated bet in our props tool with a Bet Quality of 10. I like the under up to -165.
Pistons PF Blake Griffin
The Pick: Over 5 assists (+115 at BetOnline)
Griffin has handed out at least five assists in eight of his past nine games, so these odds feel off to me. He does have a difficult matchup against the Jazz, but he was able to record five assists against this same team only nine days ago.
The fact that we can get better than even money on this prop makes it very enticing. It stops looking like a value around -110.
Blazers C Jusuf Nurkic
The Pick: Over 11 rebounds (-145 on Bovada)
Nurkic is averaging only 10.4 rebounds per game, so this line feels about right on the surface.
That said, he’s averaged 11.6 rebounds per game over the month of January, and he’s in an absolutely elite spot against the Kings. Sacramento is one of the league’s worst rebounding teams (26th in team rebound rate), but the Kings also play at the second fastest pace. That should result in a lot of rebound opportunities for Nurkic, who crushed them for 23 rebounds in their first meeting this season.
This prop is already juiced up pretty high, but I still think it’s providing value at the current number. I like the over up to -175.
